OCAD licenses can be purchased as Single User or Team licenses.
What is the difference? How can the licenses be used?
Single User license
Single User licenses are suitable for individual users who want to work on multiple devices.
The user of a Single User license can install the software on 1 device by default. In order to allow the use on several own devices at the same time (e.g. desktop pc, laptop, tablet for field work), further activations for own devices will be granted by OCAD on request. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in this case.
Team licenses are suitable for clubs and organizations where many users work with OCAD.
Unlike Single User licenses, a Team license can only be activated on one device at a time, but the users can transfer their license immediately and at any time to another person.
If OCAD Team licenses are transferred frequently, it can happen that a license gets “lost”. This can happen, for example, if a user does not correctly transfer or block the Team license.
Users of Team licenses can now select the option Deactivate this license automatically when closing OCAD in the License Manager. This will automatically release the Team license when OCAD is closed. The license must then be reactivated when OCAD is started again.
The latest mapping standard for sprint orienteering maps, called ISSprOM 2019, has been published by the International Orienteering Federation (IOF). The document can be downloaded from the IOF website.
OCAD has implemented the new standard in their symbol sets, which you get with the latest Service Update. The ISSprOM 2019 is valid from 1 January 2020. Until then, the current ISSOM 2007 is still in use.
In order to keep track of all the different symbol sets that have been released lately, we created the Wiki page Symbol Set Overview. There you’ll also learn how to convert your maps to the new standards.
Impassable vegetation (410) is forbidden to cross. Previous ISSOM 2007 Impassable vegetation symbol (421) using green 100% and black 50% has been removed.
Paved area with little (Brown 30%) and heavy traffic (Brown 50%).
New symbol for paved area in multilevel structures.
New symbols for passable walls, fountains and trees.
